The Doom That Came to Sarnath

One of the more obscurely narrated Lovecraftian tales, The Doom That Came to Sarnath is a great example of the style of writing of which he is famed.


Be a man. Flesh. Act like there is some blood beneath your skin and stop propping yourself up with your indecision. Dreams build monuments of the mind, but action allows you to touch them.

Rat King

Scratching and gnawing and biting to gain ground, those that hope for more and want victory as much as they want to breathe will be immortalized. The only trap is the one in your mind.


Careful with what you allow into your heart. Your mind. Your spirit. Some things will pollute you to your very core, with little course to extract the foul taint.

Dearly Departed

Sometimes you must kill the old to make room for the new.

The Watcher (Creepypasta)

Who's watching who? Who knows... All I can say is that somewhere, sometime, someone is watching you. Judging you. Scrutinizing your every move. And you have no clue.

Change Blindness

Sometimes we don't see it coming. The change is hidden in our prejudices. It resides in our doubts. Our pains and brokenness can only be surmounted through acceptance.

Catalog of Trivialities

It is often enough we find ourselves at a crossroads in life, thinking our accomplishments only as failures. It is during those times that we must look to the beginning.  Go back and see what was the impetus of the problem.  Go ahead. But you won't like what you see.

This poem was originally published in the book, "The Science of Discontent", by Marcelle D. Ward.

In the Pursuit

We chase things we aren't even meant to touch, and we pay a dire price in the end.

Channel Rebranding Preview: The Black (The Power to Form and Shape)

I decided to completely rebrand my channel and focus on writing great horror in unique ways. My vision has always been the same: to create a lasting brand while learning the best ways to approach horror narration. That being said, I hope this change expresses a more focused and professional feel as well as the passion that I have for the arts.


I’m sure you know what the word means.

The Evening Star

This poem is an interpretation of "The Evening Star", a painting by Jean-Baptiste Camille Corot, 1864.

The Black Lexicon Channel Trailer

"Lexicon" is defined as "the vocabulary of a person, language, or branch of knowledge." It is a collection of words formulated into a wordbook or dictionary. They can be illustrated or recorded in video or audio. The Black Lexicon is my collection of words, arranged in stories and poems that describe fictional and non-fictional worlds and ideas. The Black Lexicon is a catalogue of creation. It is a monument built of a man's magnified joys and the crushing weight of disappointment. The Black Lexicon is a juxtaposition of the immutable, realized power of self-actualization and the dank sorrow found in the death of a dream. It is a doorway to the shadows of the mind and the wounds of the world. It is the secret revealed and the scream unheard. It is both dead eyes and hurried, shuffling feet. It is the love in hearts and the grinding of teeth. Lastly, my lexicon is a mere contribution to three great genres of literature: horror, fantasy and science-fiction.

There is Balm in Gilead

We can find solace in the most unlikely places. Still, we won’t recognize it.

There is an idea of escaping the horrors of life, avoiding the pain and the pressure that push us to survive. We can use drugs, alcohol or even sex to let us forget, if but for a time. Yet, no matter what happens, we cannot hide from ourselves.
